I need to know why you changed the power steering pump and the belt. It sounds like you had a problem and replaced the wrong component. You chould change whatever component is locked up behind the pulley and replace the belt. Let me know if this helps.

I installed a new powersteering pump on a 88 gmc k1500, now it eats serpentine belts cant get the pullies lined up right how do i fix?

I would install a reman pump,never try & remove a pully
The pump wasn't the problem

Your problem is most likely that the crank damper has
worn & moved. The rubber in it is the issue & it is hard
to see any misalignment

When I turn my van on it squeals very loudly and it gets worse when you press the gas. What could it be?

You could have a bad or worn serpintine belt. When you replace it make sure all the pulleys are rotating freelyi.e. air compressor, alternator, tensioner idler & power steering pullies to make sure all of their bearings are running freely. Good luck!

How to fit a alternator belt on a 1.8 diesal escort van 51plate

This should be the same as a car, jack the front of the car up put stands under, remove front wheels, remove bottom cover (about 7 screws), Remove powersteering pump pully 3 bolts, remove and refit new belt and P/S pully, you might get away with not having to adjust alt but if you have to youll need a 13mm spanner to undo the locking bolt then pull the alt tight (its really tight u might need a bar), once all done replace in reverse order.

Engine made a weird noise when i started it & then the power steeing did not work & the battery light came on

the cerpenteen belt that runs the fan, powersteering pump, alternator(battery charger), and water pump broke. if the belt just broke from being old, just replace it. but check all of the pullys to make sure they spin relitivly easy. if you find one that dosen't spin easily, it could need replaced too.
